The Lorima Dau-coached Rewa side was spot on in defending their title in the 2018 INKK Mobile Bat­tle of the Giants tournament at Churchill Park in Lautoka.

What happened: New find Sairusi Nalaubu was the star for the side scoring twice in the 2-0 win over Property Valuations Suva yesterday.

The Delta Tigers were on fire from the first minute with Nalaubu scoring after Suva made a blunder in defence.

Rewa had the services of Peniame Drova, Vuniuci Tikomaimereke, Iosefo Verevou, Kalisito Posiano and Taione Kerevanua.

Halftime: Rewa 1 – 0 Suva.

Nalaubu scored his second goal in the 73rd minute af­ter being set up by Josateki Tamudu.

The capital city side had the services of Remueru Teki­ate, Kelvin Naidu, Ravinesh Karan Singh, Sakaraia Naisua, and Shahil Dave.

Big Play: Apete Ravudolo, who hails from Nakelo, Tai­levu, was on fire for Rewa.

Star turn: Nalaubu was on target.

Rewa plays Nadi in its next match at 4pm today while Suva face Dreketi at 12pm.

Comments: Rewa coach Lorima Dau said, “We had so many chances but you cannot win a game if you don’t score. We had our fair share of possessions and opportu­nities but the boys just could not score.”

Suva coach Gurjeet Singh said, “It was not a good re­sult for us. The first game is always important so losing three points is not good for us. It will be tough to come back”
